MARTINBOROUGH VINEYARD HOME BLOCK PINOT NOIR 2013
Vibrant in colour, with effusive floral aromatics, this wine’s seductive fruit presence is matched to a fine, deftly managed structure. “The fruit develops through the palate,” noted John Comerford. “It’s beautifully balanced and persistent in flavour, texture and structure.” For John Saker, the red and dark fruit, and tannin finesse, all spoke of place: “It had Martinborough written all over it.”
